Moved to Oakland in the spring of 2010. Originally from Chicago. Enjoy living in Oakland, but work in SSF, so most of the people I know in the bay area live in the city, Foster City, etc. So I need to get out more and meet more people that live in Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley etc.

Live a few blocks from Lake Merritt and a few blocks from Whole Foods, in Adams Point. Love being so close to the Lake. Been trying to get back into the habit of running for the last 6 months or so and it is much easier to get motivated to run around the Lake.

Dancing . . . Dancing in the streets . . .

Note: Not really much of a dancer. Just being goofy and referencing a Grateful Dead cover. The following section began with me writing one sentence about one of the original writers of the song, "Dancing In the Streets".

Random Music Trivia -

1. What singer originally co-wrote, "Dancing in the Streets" Who originally recorded, "Dancing In the Streets"?

2. Name the artists/song that first recorded distortion, which had been a result of damage to amp speaker, and originally, not intentional.

3. Who originally introduced Hendrix to the Wah pedal?

4. What guitarists did Hendrix say was better than him?

5. Which country artist originally wrote, "Crazy", a song which was made quite famous by Patsy Cline?

Really depends. Sometimes just feel like relaxing at my place and watch a movie or listen to music. But also enjoy going out to a bar for a few drinks and possibly some live music.

I also play guitar, so sometimes just want to stay in and play some music. Always looking to jam with other people, so drop me a line if you want to play some music.
